Turning evolution into revolutionary technical designs

The Gecomer® Technology is the result of award-winning fundamental research on the strongest adhesion in nature. The pioneering research by Prof. Eduard Arzt and his groups, at the Max Planck Institute for Metal Research and at the Leibniz-Institute for New Materials, has successfully demonstrated the transfer to laboratory scale. Using clean room technology and computer simulations, we have developed our own, patented surface structures that adhere reversibly to various materials and objects. The adhesion and release performance is tailored to the requirements in an industrial environment through material, topography and miniaturisation.

Bioinspired, synthetic adhesive structures are the base of the Gecomer® Technology. They are manufactured from specialized polymers and optimized using numerical simulations.
